I ran a test on Crucial regarding my MOBO and this is what it shows :

Memory Type: DDR3 PC3-12800, DDR3 PC3-10600, DDR3 PC3-14900, DDR3 (non-ECC)
Maximum Memory: 32GB
Currently Installed Memory: 4GB
Total Memory Slots: 4
Available Memory Slots: 3

My question: Is a ddr3 1600mhz ram compatible with my MOBO?

Also, what is the difference between this two : Gskill RipjawsX 8GB Dual 1600 CL and a Gskill RipjawsX 8GB Single 1600 CL10? does the former add up to 16gb or just two 4gb for two slots instead of a single 8gb?

Yes it will run 1600, as far as the other on the sets, how about the actual model numbers of the sets, both are GSkill sets but need the model #s, you aren't showing all the info

DRAM itself runs as a 64bit device, when installed and set up in dual channel it (both or 4 sticks in dual) will operate as a 128bit device, contrary to what you will hear from many it doesn't double the speed, you'll normally see up to a 10 maybe 15% increase in performance (with Intel anyway), AMD has weaker MCs (memory controllers), so the increase will normally be less

So a Gskill RipjawsX 8GB Dual 1600 CL9 model number : [RipjawsX] F3-12800CL9Q-8GBXL would be my best bet?

Last question, does my motherboard support dual channel? It is a MSI B75MA-P45 :)  Sorry. I'm not really good at these things regarding ram. Thanks!
